The mortgage market in Bengaluru and Telangana has witnessed an uptick in registered mortgage transactions in the January - March quarter (Q1) of 2022, maintaining momentum from the last quarter. Favorable demographics, improved affordability of residential properties and historically low mortgage rates are pushing the demand for home loans. Hyderabad was an exception to this trend, with it being the only geography explored to have seen a downturn compared with what was seen last quarter. Telangana state government’s recent decision to increase registration charges might be a factor to take into consideration while evaluating Hyderabad's decline in mortgage volume .
The continued growth in demand for home loans in Bengaluru, however, can be attributed to the recent decision by the government of Karnataka to extend the time period of reduced property guidance values by an additional 3 months .
